Coffee Options

  • Strong coffee made in a coffee machine
    Make double-strength coffee in a drip coffee machine then pop it in the freezer for 15 minutes to quickly cool it down for the iced drink.
  • Cold brew
    Cold brew coffee tastes great in Mexican coffee but it does require a bit more time. See how to make it so it comes out perfect each time.
  • Espresso
    If you have an espresso machine, put in a shot or two of espresso and combine it with the spices and milk.
  • Keurig or Nespresso
    Make strong coffee by using one pod or capsule to make just half a cup by adjusting the setting.

Questions You May Have

Which coffee option is the best for this recipe?

Cold brew is my go-to for making iced coffee drinks. Make a batch and you’ll have coffee ready in the refrigerator anytime you want to make a flavored drink.

I don’t have ground cloves. Can I still make the drink without it?

Yes! If you don’t have ground cloves, add more ground cinnamon. The cloves aren’t 100% necessary but the cinnamon is.

How can I make this drink dairy-free?

Use a dairy-free milk to make the drink and don’t make the cream topping which is made of heavy cream.
